Ribbon Cutting Photo by Damione Hawkins (club member)

We are extremely thankful today for Chevron provided funding for equipment and staffing for our new “S.T.E.A.M.” center at Jackie Club in Lafayette, LA. “Science.Technology.Engineering.Arts.Mathematics” Sounds like a great combination for our youth in Acadiana.

We are also very thankful for One Acadiana, KLFY, Board Members and Damione Hawkins (club member photographer who took the pictures today) for making today’s ribbon cutting possible.

The goal of the Chevron STEAM Zone is to get teens excited about and interested in science, technology, engineering, arts and math,” said Chevron Gulf of Mexico Vice President Mike Illanne. “We understand that increasing student interest in these subjects leads to better test scores and greater professional success. We are pleased to partner with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Acadiana to provide local teens with greater access to these enriching fields of study.” ~Chevron
